Having had a brief read through, there are certainly some things in here that I would vote in, though I'm less sure about others. @pallan51 would you be up for submitting some of the ideas separately? The anti-corruption and licensing paragraphs are certainly the sort of thing we could vote on separately to the big rewrite of the tax section. What do you think?
The idea was that as there is already a land value tax as part of this platform (as recommended by economists across the political spectrum), the manifesto is already halfway to being a Geoist style philosophy. The idea of shifting the tax burden away from labour and more on to landis the centerpiece of that. The LVT currently part of the platform allows relief to come to labour in the form of tax reductions, or as far as a negative rate of income taxation that the New Physiocratic League advocates for. The idea can be summed up as follows:
• Negative net taxation on personal incomes/savings (see the New Physiocratic League's Three Pillars proposal)
